Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Looked like a shakey start but you really got into it  Smiley

Are you using two quad handles or what is your control system? Hard enough to keep up with one of those little demons, hats off to you for keeping two in synch  Cool

Thanks! The wind that day was blowing 15-35. I was flying on 75 ft. lines using Benson Airbow quad handles (they're symetrical and work well for flying 2 kites at  the same time). I usually fly 2 Cherry Bombs and am working on adding 1 more. I like flying the Microns in high winds, it's really a rush. I have flown them with 50 ft. tales which looks cool and I hope to try 100 ft. tales some day.

Nicely done - I also love flying those little dudes - they don't like low winds I've noticed - never thought about flying two of them at the same time...  Hmm, I may have to crash mine trying some day...

Good flying,

Thanks! I like them for high winds because they won't pull my arms off and I can fly them for a long time without getting tired, although they are kinda squirrely.

Ya, except when you start to stack them - they start to give a bit of a pull...  I have the 5 stack and in winds reaching 20 + mph, it starts to pull like a truck...

That would be cool - fly a couple stacks...    ;-)

You could hook up a third one with one line to an end of each handle.  It would control normally then.  That'd be awesome.
